Man Seriously Injured In Possible Gang-Related Shooting

An eighteen year old man is recovering after suffering a serious gunshot wound Wednesday evening. 

Omaha Police say officers were called to a home near 32nd and Seward for a shooting just before 6:00. Once on the scene, officers located Gregory Garrett, who was suffering from a gunshot wound. Garrett was transported to Nebraska Medicine in serious condition.

6 News reports that the preliminary investigation indicates someone got out of a vehicle and fired four or five shots at the victim who then went into a residence from which the 911 call was placed.

Omaha Police Lt. Jake Ritonya said, "Gang Unit officers were out here, uh, they do believe it's a gang-related shooting. At least the victim is known to them as a gang member and so this is an active investigation between gang and uniform patrol."

The investigation is ongoing. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP. Tips leading to the arrest of a shooting suspect are eligible for a reward of $10,000.
